All throughout the impeachment inquiry, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has stated that he would allow Republicans to hear from the whistleblower.
All the while, Republicans have been calling him a liar, saying he has no intention of ever letting them question the person.
Schiff finally proved them all right, admitting that he has no intention of letting anyone speak to this person now.
No Longer Needed
While all of this was playing out, we could just tell that Schiff was going to do everything he could to back out on his promise to allow Republicans to talk to the whistleblower, even behind closed doors.
The problem for Schiff is that he knows Republicans are going to destroy the credibility of this person.
We already know the individual had no first-hand knowledge of Trump ever doing anything wrong.
As we have stated before, the only witness that did have a direct conversation with Trump on this matter was Ambassador Sondland.
And Sondland testified during the public hearing that Trump flat-out told him no quid pro quo!
No, Republicans would work very hard to prove this person has an agenda and an ax to grind against Trump, which would prove this was purely politically motivated in nature.
So, now Schiff is using protection as a shield to keep Republicans away from this person.
While making an appearance on “Meet the Press,” Schiff was asked directly if he would follow through on his promise to allow Republicans to question this individual.
Schiff replied, “We don’t need the whistleblower’s second-hand evidence anymore.”
He then added, “It would only serve to endanger this person and to gratify the president’s desire for retribution.”
So, there you have it, once again, Adam Schiff has lied to the American people and refuses to be completely transparent.
He is truly earning the moniker President Trump has given him of “Shifty Schiff.”
